The Takasago group has established the “Corporate Logistics Policy” as principles of logistics in accordance with the “Charter of Corporate Behavior” which includes consideration toward a sustainable society. We practice the following in our logistics activities:
Corporate Logistics Policy
- Continuously striving to provide the highest level of customer service while providing a safe and stable source of supply.
- Constantly pursuing excellence in our logistics operations, systems and processes.
- Persisting in the observance of all relevant laws and regulations, respect for human rights, being fair, and considering environmental preservation.
Reducing Environmental Impact in Logistics
We have set ambitious targets for GHG emissions reduction according to the SBTi (Science Based Targets Initiatives) criteria as a measure to mitigate climate change.
The third-party inspection has made it possible to improve the measurement of indirect emission data such as the amount of CO2 generated from transportation and distribution (upstream).
Our logistics team is making efforts to reduce the number of trucks transporting between factories and the distribution center by improving load efficiency to reduce CO2 emissions in Japan.
As our long-term sustainability commitment, we will continue to improve the efficiency of our logistics network to reduce environmental impact.
The Takasago group has established Declaration of Information Security. Additionally, we have an IT regulation for internal use.

Conflict Mineral Response
Certain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold) produced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries are being mined in an inhuman manner and circulated as a source of funding for militant groups. The procurement and usage of conflict materials is a major concern on human rights.
The Takasago Group views the procurement and usage of conflict minerals as a major social issue and has established the "Conflict Mineral Response Policy" in order to promote procurement activities that take human rights and the environment into consideration. Based on this policy, we will continue to cooperate with our business partners and strive to avoid the use of concerned minerals.
